I’m always amazed when looking at one of Chris’ realistic paintings – the detail is amazing. He captures subtleties in lighting and color – I can imagine being in the picture. My favorite is the old tractor in the snow – I can feel the cold of the snow, and imagine the silence of the woods where it has “retired” and imagine how it looked when it was shiny and new. That is what a painting should do, and Chris does it very well!
